3rd BOOK in PARADOX Collection: MAMA IN THE CANDLELIGHT
Life is full of Paradoxes.
Mama in the Candlelight is the 3rd book in my PARADOX collection.
Readers may unexpectedly find this book is not about motherhood, but about the contemporary silhouette of commonly stirring anxiety transmitted between generations in Chinese community. With the unique legacy of turbulent years, my narration starts from the intriguing but true story of bloody killing by the cold violence fermented from unbalanced ego and irrational discrimination. Particularly, in this true story, my parents are the two opposite protagonists.
On the tenth anniversary of Father’s passing away into the immortal world, I wrote out openly to the world, of all these controversial memories from my own childhood to the growth of my daughter. I want to express my gratitude to my father for his guidance and care towards me all the time, while he was alive and now in the eternity. I am grateful that I can finally be able to realize the endless spiritual heritage of Father’s unconditional love for family and to all the people around us. For the adversities we are, in fact, experiencing together, it is not my intention to blame anyone, or my mother, or the era, or the society.
I dedicate this book to Father’s soul in heaven, wishing the
faith he stuck to his whole life, that the truth, goodness, and beauty
can prevail in everyone’s heart again, as once they were,
somewhere in our tradition and history.
